Cannes 2013

Nicole Kidman in Valentino at the Nebraska Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Nicole Kidman attended the red carpet premiere of Nebraska at the Cannes Film Festival in this stunning off-white, sleeveless Valentino Couture laser-cut floral lace gown with a flowing train.

She styled her elegant look with Cathy Waterman jewels, including a pair of exquisite diamond and gold drop earrings.

A subtle pink lip and sweeping up-do added the final touches to her ensemble.

I am so glad to see Nicole wearing Valentino, while it's not the gown I had selected for her, this is a welcomed surprise.

Rumor has it this was the gown that Anne Hathaway was going to wear to the Oscars, before learning it was quite similar to Amanda Seyfried's Oscar gown.

What do you think of Nicole's choice of Valentino dress?

Emma Watson attended the red carpet premiere of The Bling Ring at the Cannes Film Festival in this sleek black and white Chanel Couture silk gown featuring a sparkling bodice. I love how the skirt flare's out just a touch at the bottom.

She styled her look with platform pumps and three dazzling ear cuffs.

A lovely up-do with side-swept bangs and a a subtle pink lip added the finishing toches to her elegant ensemble.

I love this look on Emma, she has such a knack for picking looks that are the perfect balance of youth and sophistication.

What are your thoughts?

Emma Watson in Christopher Kane at The Bling Ring Cannes Festival Photocall

Emma Watson attended a photocall for her upcoming movie, The Bling Ring at the Cannes Film Festival wearing this youthful and flirty, wine colored Christopher Kane ensemble accented with feathers on the bodice and skirt.

The young actress styled her look with black pointed pumps and opted for no jewels.

A classic up-do and barely there makeup added the finishing touches.

I adore Emma's first look for Cannes and I am sure there are more looks to love from the British beauty.

Carey Mulligan and her co-stars braved the rain for the red carpet premiere of The Great Gatsby at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival. The actress wore a très chic pale pink Christian Dior Couture satin gown with a daring plunging neckline.

She complimented her elegant ensemble with dazzling Tiffany and Co. jewels including a stunning pair of diamond drop earrings and satin platform heels.

A sleek center-parted hairstyle and bold red lip added the final touches.

This is probably one of my favorite Carey Mulligan looks, ever.  Everything about this look just works and she looks fabulous.

Nicole Kidman Cannes 2013 Red Carpet Wishlist

Nicole Kidman has been confirmed as a jury member for this year's Cannes Film Festival. Last year, Cannes jury member Diane Kruger showcased a plethora of gorgeous gowns and stylish frocks on the red carpet in the French Rivera. I just know that Nicole will do the same. She has outstanding fashion sense and is the epitome of elegance.

Kidman tends to favor slim-fitting silhouettes that dazzle with sparkle or have some sort of wow factor that makes a statement in the most stunning way - I am thinking specifically of the halter-neck studded Versace gown she wore to the 2012 Golden Globes and the embellished floral Vivienne Westwood column gown she wore to this year's SAG Awards

Nicole loves designers such as Prada, Balenciaga, Dior, Nina Ricci and L'Wren Scott. She has worn so many looks from L'Wren Scott recently, (the Oscars and event galas) I can't imagine there is anything left for Cannes. Whatever looks she selects, there is no doubt they will be both sexy and glamorous.

Here are a few gowns that I think Nicole should wear on this year's Cannes red carpet.

I said it once, and I am saying it again, Nicole needs to wear this red short-sleeved Elie Saab Couture column dress with an embellished bodice. I just love how she looks wearing red, and with her hair swept up in loose curls or an elegant bun this would be a knockout look.

For the opening ceremony of Cannes, I would love to see Nicole opt for a glamorous ballgown. I know that this not her preferred style, but this floor-sweeping Valentino Haute Couture strapless gown with embellished gold and floral details would make a dramatic statement. Don't you agree?

Another possible figure-flattering look for the Australian beauty would be this sleeveless black and white, velvet Reem Acra column gown with dazzling embroidered details. There are actually five or six gowns I could see Nicole wearing from Acra's Spring 2013 collection, but this one I think has the best chance.

Zuhair Murad has become one of my must see designers on the red carpet. In this sultry single-shoulder, midnight navy gown with sheer embellished details on the bodice Nicole would undoubtedly make heads turn.

For a few of the less formal events, Nina Ricci has the best selection of elegant ladylike frocks for Nicole to choose from. With the mostly red, white and black color palette from Ricci's Fall 2013 collection, it would be easy to see the multi-talented actress any any number of the looks. I adore this LBD from the designer, something about silhouette reminds me of Grace Kelly. Which is fitting for Kidman, as she is portraying the Princess in the upcoming film Grace of Monaco.

This curve-hugging dove grey Marchesa trumpet gown would be a long shot look for Nicole to wear, but I think the color and silhouette would look quite fabulous on her gorgeous frame.

Which of these looks do you think Nicole will most likely wear on Cannes red carpet? Are there any specific dresses or designers you'd like to see her in?
